SPIE Digital Library

The SPIE Digital Library is the most extensive resource available on optics and photonics, providing unprecedented access to more than 300,000 technical papers from SPIE journals and conference proceedings from 1990 to the present. More than 17,000 new technical papers are added annually.

Some proceedings volumes are not available in the SPIE Digital Library as SPIE does not have electronic rights to this material. Click here for a listing of those volumes.

SPIE has collaborated with the American Institute of Physics (AIP) to help develop the Digital Library, which is being hosted on AIP's Scitation platform. Inclusion on Scitation ensures customers of a proven online publishing system with an excellent reliability record, powerful search engine, and many useful features.
